Soakaway Testing

Planning Policy Statement 25 (PPS 25) development and flood risk encourages the use of sustainable drainage systems to deal with surface water run-off from all new development sites. Soakaway testing helps determine whether ground conditions are amenable to the use of soakaways and informs on their design.

The Land Consultancy Limited has recently completed soakaway testing on several new housing development sites in the Manchester and Liverpool areas as well as for several wind farms.
